What Can I Expect From Naturopathic Medical Care?

Your first visit with Dr Rosen-Grigel lasts 90 minutes to insure that she will get to know you as an individual, and understand your health needs in a comprehensive way in order to craft a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs. This first visit may include:

  • Comprehensive Interview—to understand all factors affecting health and wellbeing.
  • Full Medical Evaluation, including physical and gynecological exams.
  • Open communication about the reasons for all lab testing and treatments, as well as explanation of lab results.
  • Prescription based on the least invasive, most nourishing and appropriate treatments.
  • Treatment of you as a whole person.

What conditions do you treat?

As primary care doctors, we are educated to treat any condition on an outpatient basis. We treat everyone as people, not conditions. With that said, some of the things I treat most frequently include women’s medicine, hormone dysfunction, including adrenal, reproductive, and thyroid; digestive problems; neck, shoulder, and back pain; allergies; and autoimmune disease.

What treatments do you use?

NDs are trained to use many types of treatment modalities. The ones I use most frequently include:

  • Therapeutic Nutrition
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Botanical Medicine
  • Homeopathy
  • Vitamin and Mineral Therapy
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Other Natural Substances

Do you take insurance?

The Golden Naturopathic Clinic, LLC does not bill insurance. However, you will receive a transmittal sheet with all the coding necessary for you to self-submit to you insurance provider.  Many patients also choose to pay with Health Spending (HSA) or flex-spending plans.

What is a Naturopathic Doctor (ND)?

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs)  focus on treating the whole person. The treatments utilized by NDs vary widely and can include therapeutic nutrition, homeopathic remedies, botanical remedies, nutritional supplementation, physical medicine, and prescription medications when necessary, depending on the laws of each state. Naturopathic education is a four-to-five year, graduate level, outpatient-based medical program that focuses on primary care medicine.

The truly distinguishing characteristic of Naturopathic education lies in the emphasis on the philosophy of how we approach patient care. Each person is viewed as an individual; I work with your specific needs regardless of the condition to bring your body into its highest state of balance. The focus is on strengthening each system so it can function optimally and help your body heal itself.

My highest priority is to help you live the life you choose with vitality!

What is your education?

Naturopathic doctors, or NDs, receive a 4 to 5 year medical education, similar in scope to that of a medical doctor. In addition to the conventional sciences, NDs receive extensive training in nutrition and psychology. NDs also spend over 3,000 hours during their training at outpatient clinics both at their medical schools and with outside providers. Many treatment modalities are studied in addition to traditional pharmacology.
